Attend the General Assembly
Our annual General Assembly will be this coming Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the Earth Discovery Center in Eagle Creek Park. Please try and be there. We will elect new officers for the upcoming Club year which starts on October 1. There are two changes to the slate of officers listed in the September hike schedule. John Gaebler will be taking over as President for the second time. And Rena Elsner will be joining the board as a Director at Large. After the election Chuck Turner will be telling and showing us about his recent treks on the Tahoe Rim Trail and the John Muir Trail. Snacks will be provided at the meeting.
The Indiana Crossroads Orienteering Club has an open invitation to IHC members to learn about the fun sport of orienteering - navigating the woods with a map and compass. Check out their website and consider attending one of their events. Hopefully, we will be able to schedule a joint event with them in 2015. There is a nice overview of Orienteering at the top of the hike schedule page.
New Website Features
Check out three new links on the Home page appearing above “Recent Club News” for
Today’s Hikes, Tomorrow’s Hikes and Calendar. Select a day and you will see a list of all the hikes for that day. If you select Calendar the current month's calendar will be displayed. Click on any day on the calendar and that day’s hikes will be displayed almost
instantaneously. Even if a hike is a repeat date (e.g., appears in the full schedule as See March 21) you will
see the complete description. If a blue Map reference is included in the hike description, click on it to see a Google
map pointing to the hike meeting location.
Now, if you simply want to confirm the start time or directions to a hike,
pull up the Home page and click on the date. This should be especially valuable from a cell phone or other handheld device. No longer will you have to retrieve the entire schedule (which takes time) and scroll down to the date you want. A simple click should do it.
